There is something truly unique in the exhilaration of travelling by train in India, an experience that engages the senses and immerses you in the wonders of this mystical land.
Discover spectacular landscapes, dominated by leafy plantations that give way to bustling cities, a dazzling display of exotic wildlife and a wide range of historic monuments all from the comfort of your choice of luxurious trains.
India’s diverse landscapes and cultures are united by colour, which controls every aspect of life. From the infusion of green spices and tea leaves, to the treasure trove that is the painted blue city of Jodhpur and from the Taj Mahal’s white marble, meticulously inlaid with semi-precious stone, to Delhi’s imposing Red Fort, travelling by train with Planet Rail allows you to tour through the incredible palette of India.
We thought the Italian trains from Milan were superbly comfortable and were also very impressed by the station at Milan. We had a very warm and friendly welcome at the hotel. The room was lovely, beautiful marble bathroom, and a wide choice at breakfast. It was very central and after a long day’s sightseeing we twice used the spa facilities of steam room and pool to ease aching feet and backs. An excellent choice.
The hotel at Montreux was a delight – and only 20 yards across the road from the station! I’m glad we’d upgraded to a lake view room because we had a large balcony, the weather was sunny and warm and the views fabulous. We ate at the hotel restaurant and had the most wonderful meal.
All in all we had a lovely time and hope to use your services again.
